Not a bad by-catch. This cobia was caught floatlining for snapper.

Black are back for marlin mayhem
David Green | January 2015

Michael Green with a nice blue marlin. There have been plenty of blues around the 150kg mark out wider.

This month should be a sensational one for chasing small black marlin on the inshore grounds off the Gold Coast. With earlier great fishing around Hervey Bay, the southern push of the East Australian Current will see huge numbers of 15-40kg black marlin arrive on the Gold Coast this month.

Early anglers make the catches
Nabeel Issa | January 2015

Snapper like this 50cm model have been a common catch in the shallows.

Summer has well and truly settled in, and the fishing has certainly followed suit. December has always been a mixed month for me, the fishing fires but contending with the extra boat traffic from holiday-makers always makes things a little tricky. Anglers having the most success have been getting out on the water early before the crowds get in.

Deep diving and suspending lures are great offerings for jacks as they get down into the strike zone and entice them to strike.

With the festive season all but over and the kids now back at school there will now be a lot more space between boats out on the water. The chaos of the holiday period can at times quieten the fishing action due to the extra boating traffic including fishers, sailors, jet skiers and other boating enthusiasts.

If you had any doubts that summer was going to be quiet then I am sure your opinion has changed. Mackerel and tuna are everywhere at the moment along with a large range of pelagics making every angler anxious to get out on the water. From the first day of summer, we just knew we were in for something special this season and so far each trip just confirms just how good things will be.

Fire up the reds
Mick Morris | January 2015

Jason Pivott with some quality Jumpinpin whiting.

I hope everyone had a good Christmas and New Year’s and is ready and raring to get stuck into what should be another cracking year of fishing the Pin. There are going to be plenty of boats heading out over this school holiday period chasing a feed of bream, whiting or flathead and they should all be around in good numbers right throughout January.
